Where Has the Year Gone?

I am sure it was summer last week… and I’m not commenting on the weather.

This year has flown by, as they all seem to any more.  This has been a busy year at Community Real Estate.  The name change being just one of the latest events.

It has also been a very busy year in the real estate market, with lots of competition for homes, rises in prices, and lack of homes to sell to all our clients.

As a company we have hosted career nights, encouraging individuals to join our profession, celebrated successes with our sales representatives, and participated in our community.

As a group, we have been involved in a number of events such as; collecting dresses for the Prom Project – helping teens find that perfect dress/shoes/purse/suit for the party, collecting treasures from our own homes and those of our customers and clients to host a garage sale to raise funds for families at Christmas, soliciting items for our annual silent and live auction to raise funds for families at Christmas, collecting non-perishable food items for Neighbour to Neighbour, and sponsoring the Locke Street Music Festival, just to name a few.

Just last week, the elves around here were busy wrapping Christmas gifts and delivering them to our Christmas families.

All of these events and causes that we get involved in, provide a feeling of satisfaction to our group. We all believe in giving back to the community that provides us with our ability to make a living, by helping people buy and sell homes.

Like more of you, we have already started planning for 2016.  I am sure it will be an eventful year (they all are), and this time next year we will all be wondering where the time went…

 

 

 

It’s All About Community!

I am so excited that our company has chosen to change its name to Coldwell Banker Community Real Estate

CB_Community_Logo_3D_2_outline

We have been established in the area for over 35 years, and our main focus has always been on helping our community grow and flourish. Our REALTORS® are always working to help families find the right community to live in, and to ensure they have all the services they need to stay and raise their families.

Our company has also always been involved in the REALTOR® community, volunteering on various committees at the local real estate association, provincially and federally.

We believe we have a unique culture at our company, where everyone is ‘part of the whole’. We work together to ensure everyone succeeds, creating our own community under the company umbrella.

Also, at Community Real Estate we have always tried to give back to our community, whether by participating in fundraising events, sponsoring festivals, collecting for local food banks, just to name a few… Our most recent project has been our “Christmas to Remember” where we are helping families, and children in particular, have the Merry Christmas so many of us take for granted.

We gave a lot of thought to what we stand for as a company, and what makes us who we are. As a result, we have adopted a new mission statement that we feel best describes who we are and what we do. WORKING TO BUILD STRONG COMMUNITIES.

If you are looking for a company that is involved in where it lives and works, and gives back to its community, give us a call.
